Ileana D'Cruz refused to work in "Wanted (2009)", the Hindi version of Telugu hit "Pokiri" and thus lost the opportunity to romance Salman Khan on the big screen. Now she hopes to get another chance to team up with the Bollywood star.

"Yes, I was approached for the remake of 'Pokiri' in Tamil and Hindi. I did 'Pokiri' in Telugu, which did a huge business. I didn't take the offer of 'Pokiri' in Hindi, which was titled 'Wanted', as I felt I was not prepared enough to enter Bollywood," the actress, who is now debuting in Bollywood with "Barfi!" told IANS.

"It was not that I didn't want to do the film, it's just that I didn't want to do it half-heartedly. I missed an opportunity to work with Salman in 'Wanted'. But no regret as I feel 'Barfi!' is the perfect launch for me. But I am really happy that 'Wanted' did well. I would love to work with Salman Khan in the near future," she added.

In the 2006 hit Telugu film "Pokiri", she had teamed up with Mahesh. Puri Jagannadh directed it.

The Tamil version, titled 'Pokkiri' and starring Vijay and Asin Thottumkal, was directed by Prabhu Deva who also wielded the megaphone for "Wanted".
